  1. What is the breakdown by school of the Sharks invitational team and who is the coaching / management team?

    ReplyReply
  2. Quite a few Glenwood players out, Matthew Harmsworth, Joseph Potgieter, Jacques Dumas, Derwent Stopforth and Dewaldt van Tonder. Does anyone know what happened to these guys? Dropped or injured? Harmsworths height and Potgieters weight will be missed especially against the monster Boishaai lock Leroux Roets!

    ReplyReply
  3. Also who is Tiaan Kruger and why they playing Vidima at lock? He can’t weigh more than 90kg, better lineout jumper?

    ReplyReply
  4. @Grasshopper: As far as I know Harmsworth is injured and Stopforth and Potgieter are ill. I honestly thought Van Tonder was playing as he was part of the practice yesterday.
    Not sure when these lists were presented to Wildeklawer but if its anything like the changes to the junior schedule I will only believe it when I see it tomorrow.

    ReplyReply
  5. @NW_Knight: Seems strange that they do not have him in their squad though, especially when we have a No8 playing lock in Vidima…oh well…..

    ReplyReply
  6. @NW_Knight: Why is Harmsworth not listed on the KZN Inv team sheet if he is playing for them?
    Do you know who is coaching and managing this KZN Inv team?

    ReplyReply
  7. @NW_Knight: The original fixture list for KZN on this website had Northwood down to play George Campbell on 4 May. Has this game been cancelled? Or maybe postponed?

    ReplyReply
  8. I’m quite excited about the KZN Sharks XV. They are a combo of Northwood, Campbell and Porties. Almost like a Damelin Night Series XV

    ReplyReply
  9. @beet: They will get good experience out of this game.

    The frontrow will hold their own against HJS and with Mondli and Philo in that backline, their could be some excitement if they can get some decent ball.

    Philo is the closest thing KZN has to Selvyn Davids of Nico Malan. He has wheels and an amazing step.

    ReplyReply
  10. Hopefully College can continue with Jason Alexander at 10 (Koekemoer at 12). Also hope Marcel Coetzee can produce some big performances. I’m seen Brad Ellse lift his game since moving to 12 for Westville and Tristan Blewett of Hilton looks like the real deal, so Marcel needs show that he has the edge on these contenders for KZN Craven Week. AK Nela of Glenwood is another who is looking good for CW.

  11. Fraternal Socialist greetings to all my fellow comrades in arms. Sadly, not many of you have bothered to pick up the spade and the axe- only the AK, hence the condition of the world. Workers unite in this new workers paradise! Down with the capitalists and their bourgoisi sport, like rugby. Just joking !!! Thought that I can stir some feathers on May day :!:

    ReplyReply
  12. Oh, and just to ruffle some more feathers and wake you up on Workers day to face the economic challenges, I notice that R365 , on their latest “ranking” places Grey at No 2. They argue, and rightfully so, argue that the team, since loosing by 2 to Kwaggas, has accumulated 453 points while just conceding 89, hardly a reason to drop them down the list. Exclusively to those, of course, who are interested in “ranking” and find it worth discussing. Viva! :mrgreen:

    ReplyReply
  13. @BOG, it unfortunately makes no sense to rank Grey College above Kwaggas and Affies. Grey was convincingly beaten by Outeniqua, 4 tries to 2. Gellant only made one kick. The score line flattered Grey C who had no answer against Human. In turn, after Gym’s demolition of the Kwaggas Grey should fall out of the top 4 for now.

    ReplyReply
  14. I@gimmie: I agree 100%. But 365 admit not knowing much about SBR and the ranking is due to personal opinions. Their reasoning sounds like “Play the blind and cripple, accumulate points and you will be ranked high. C’mon.
    1) Paarl Gim
    2) Affies
    3) Waterkloof
    4) Nelspruit
    5) Kwaggas
    6) HTS Middelburg
    7) Gey

    ReplyReply
  15. @gimmie: Not that I attach any importance or value to rankings, but I too, can add some ifs-1)2 points convincing? 2) if GCBs captain played 3) if the ref saw the try 4) if, if, if 5) 12 points a demolition?6) If GCB was as settled as they now seem to be— And so I can carry on- I guess the next 2 months will tell us the true story, but as it stands on 365, GCB is at 2 for what its worth. Agree or disagree- its simply a matter of opinion and as far as I know, they have never been over sympathetic towards GCB.

    ReplyReply
  16. @BOG: You can add a hundred ifs to your argument but history will show Grey lost 22-20 to Kwaggas in 2013.

    ReplyReply
  17. @Tjoppa: One should pay as much attention to a man in a pink shirt as you pay attention to the BBS in pink at Moftus. As I said, its all opinion-nothing more, nothing less. You can put GCB at 50, but that wont change 365s list, with which I agree, incidentally. But that too, is merely opinion. And you know what they say about opinions. They are like a-holes- everyones got one.

  18. Grey Bloem always improve as the season goes on, they would beat the Kwaggas now in my opinion. Grey will end up 2nd by season end, just behind an amazing Gim side. Glenwood have the scary task of playing Grey Bloem in Bloem at the end of the season, eish!

    ReplyReply
  19. @gimmie: Ouboet Bog= Grey Bloem is getik met die ranking, hy weet sy span het teen die ander gemengde (seuns en meisies) skool verloor, ons sal nou ‘n verdere 7 jaar moet wag voor sy skool weer teen hulle ook gaan speel.

  21. @PaarlBok: @PaarlBok: Jy sukkel met sekere basiese begrippe, en soos ek vir jou gese het, simptome van n raserige kop, oa oor “vrees/bang” en n obsessie met n gemengde skool, wat kwansuis “normaal” is, GCB is ook gemeng- Afrikaans, Engels, Jode, Portugese, Grieke, Sothos, Indier, Sjinees , Xhosas en elke ander groep en wat dametjies betref, het hulle twee susterskole vol pragtige mooi meisies Dit verklaar waarom die produkte hulle plekke so mooi volstaan in die samelewing oa julle Bestuursraad@Klofie Pa: Om dit nou n behoorlike vol naweek gemaak het, moes julle n “friendly” gereel het teen GCB, vandag. Die reelings het, met respek, dink ek, hierdie jaar, wat “matching” betref, nie heeltemal mooi uitgewerk nie. Maar die wedstryd teen Gim behoort minder van n uitdaging vir julle te wees.

  22. @grasshopper, you are probable right, but presently We cannot assume that. Past performances are the only measurement in these rankings and Grey lost against a Kwaggas side that in my view will lose again, certainly against Affies. By the way one of our toughest games in 2012 was against Glenwood. Your pack really stood up and gave it to us. The game was on a knife’s edge half way through the second half before a moment of Schickerling genius settled the game. I am looking forward to seeing your results at Wildeklawer. With respect, I cannot understand how your coaches plan the Glenwood season every year. They completely overplay your team by easter. How can you play 6 games in 2 weeks around Easter? No top school does that. That is why Glenwood has so many injuries. You need to build up to KERF, not play multiple games before that.

    ReplyReply
  23. @Klofie Pa: In KZN we get our deep heat from a damn fine curry. Unless you are liberal with the Deep Heat then the curry will reach places that Deep Heat can only dream about.

    However, if you are serious, and it not available anywhere there, then shout and I can try to get some to College tomorrow with mates. Failing that, I can get a bottle of “hotters” send up from the Oriental. 8) 8)

    ReplyReply
  24. @gimmie: I dont gamble but you are so sure of yourself, perhaps you can give me the lotto numbers for next week? Certainly loose to Affies? I think that can only be decided between the white lines in May. And what makes you so sure that they will loose again? Oh yes, opinion! Yours!!

    ReplyReply
  25. @Gungets Tuft: Funny!! man you are. LOL
    listen you guys got a lekker laidback lifestyle in this part of the world!! still think the country side the most stunning in the SA!!
    very fortunate you lot are!!

    ReplyReply
  26. My personal opinion is that between Paarl Gim, Affies and Grey Bloem the teams ranked position 1 and 2 by the end of the season would not have played one another. Obviously Paarl Gim occupying spot 1 (likely) or 2 and Affies or Grey Bloem the other.

    It would have been interesting to have a match up at the end of each season between the two top ranked teams if they had not played each other during the year. Similar to a “final”.

    ReplyReply
  27. @gimmie: Yep, we lost 25-35 at Wildeklawer where you guys raced out to a huge lead at half time, we then clawed our way back in the 2nd to make it respectable. This year at Kearsney, Gim was just too big, too skillful and too good for our young troops. They would have learnt plenty in that game, especially younsters props Tredoux and Van Niekerk, No8 Jaco Coetzee, flyhalf Jonas, wing Spam Ngcobo and fullback Morne Joubert in the starting team. These guys will be our spine in 2014. We need to get a win over Gim at some stage. I don’t think we have ever beaten Boishaai or Gim, but have beaten Boland Landbou, Paul Roos, Affies twice, Monnas, Waterkloof and Grey before. Our games at Wildeklawer this year are tough again but I’m hoping for a surprise win. As for our season, you are spot on……far too many games in such a short period. We played 6 games in less than 2 weeks! We should drop Pukke, it’s too much and concentrate on doing well at an Easter festival…….good luck to Gim this weekend!

  30. @Klofie Pa: Tjaaaas boet, the one thing we take very seriously is not taking ourselves too seriously, but we like to think we get the job done.

    I am serious (in a non-serious sort of way) about the muti though, bit late tonight but can get it to you on Friday. Due to a seriously badly planned family wedding I am not going to make it to College on Saturday, which is a pity, always like to put faces to names. I will have to rely on my spies and the hidden camera footage to form opinions. But if your car breaks down, get Beet to phone me, for a decent tow I will make a plan

    ReplyReply
  31. @grasshoper, I see KERF and Wildeklawer are back to back next year as it was in 2011. I can’t see us playing at both as we need to look after the kids, they cannot play 5 games in 12 days. We did that in 2011 with a decent team but never recovered from all the injuries and had one of our worst seasons ever. It simply is not fair on the kids. The organisers should really be more considerate. I bet you that you will not have many top schools playing both. By the way, we can all learn from Grey College, they are the best conditioned and the most scientific. They never overplay their team and the results show. We learn from them, the mean green machine should too…

    ReplyReply
  32. @BOG, my opinions are formed from watching a lot of schools rugby, I have actually seen Outeniqua play live, and it was obvious that they are not invincible. in my view Affies was the top team last year. I was present when they beat us at KERF and BoIshaai at Wildeklawer. they were ruthless. I expect them to be very good again this year with Jurie and RP still there. I am curious about Waterkloof, they are still unbeaten. Are they serious contenders to the nr 1 spot? Anyone seen them play?

    ReplyReply
  33. @Gungets Tuft: I will be on one of the corners towards which Waterkloof is playing with my most beautifull wife next to me!! Maybe you should send me up some of that spieced goodies or bottles you talking about. Hope to meet Beet also since he’s the big boss running this blog.
    Is there a real curryfood restaurant in and about Umhlanga? Yonks ago the best I’ve expienced were at Shakas Rock!! Never had since.

  34. @BOG: lyk my geskiedenis tel toe wel iets vir julle in 2013? Jou skool se geskiedenis sit julle 2de op R365 se rankings, want dit kon definitief nie julle uitslae gewees het nie.. Jammer dat julle geskiedenis julle nie op nr.1 kan kry nie…

    ReplyReply
  35. @Klofie Pa: That is a good thing, better than ou Zoomer, he always takes an ugly wife or two along as well. Will look up the curry spots in Umhlanga, the best ones are in other areas

  36. @jakkie, jy vat die woorde so uit my mond uit! Voorspoed vir die Kwaggas, ek is seker julle afrigtingspan sou n paar verstellings gemaak het, julle het n ongelooflike talentvolle groep spelers!

    ReplyReply
  37. Grey het nog net teen een van R365 se top20 skole gespeel en daardie wedstryd buitendien verloor. So maak vir my glad nie sin dat hulle 2de le nie? Gim is onoorwonne en het twee van die top20 oortuigend geklop. Affies sover ek weet, het nog nie een van R365 se top20 gespeel nie. Kwaggas het al 4 gespeel, 3 gewen (2, 8 en 17), maar le onder 2.

  38. @gimmie: dankie! Julle span is uitstekend, loosvoorspelers kan enige span ontwrig en res van die span funksioneer soos n masjien, elke posisie doen sy werk! Sterkte met seisoen!

  40. @jakkie: Jou geheue laat jou iewat in die steek. Dit was nie ek wat n probleem met geskiedenis gehad het nie.Dit was julle.Ek kan nie namens die skool of ander OGs praat nie, maar ironies genoeg dink ek, steur hulle hul nie veel aan ranglyste nie@gimmie: Ek wil nie op Klofie Pa se tone trap en veroorsaak dat hy in sy curry verstik nie, maar die twee uitslae waarmee ek vertoud is, is WK teen Louis Botha (15-0?) en Sentraal (25-20) wie die Cherries met 40-7 gewen het. So, n interessante seisoen le nog voor. As hulle ooit sou moes uitspeel, watter ranglys sal hulle gebruik?@Tjoppa: Dit lyk vir my of Paarlbok vir jou kreef gestuur het wat hy tydens die rooigety uitgehaal het. Hy het ook vasgesteek op twee dinge- vrees en normaal. Jy weer, reen en onderwyser@Klofie Pa: As jy beindruk is met die country side in die outpost, sal jy oorstelp wees met die in die Ooskaap- die mees onderskatte in SA.

  41. @Klofie Pa: I’ll be there all day everyday so can also bring you some supplies if you like – I rate myself as an expert on Bunny Chows so can bring you one that will make Deep Heat pale by comparison. You sometimes need to put a toilet roll in the freezer for the next morning. Look out for me – I’ll be officiating mostly on the B field. Can’t tell you which games – don’t want to get Ploegskaar over analysing the results for signs of bias :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

  42. @Gungets Tuft: There was/still is a great place just next to Musgrave Centre called Little India. I still find the cheapie family run take aways in the Indian areas the best. Anwar’s Nice and Spicy in Mt Edgecombe make the best Quarter Beans you will ever taste. Mrs Govenders in Edwin Swales Drv is a close second.

    Why is Kloofie Pa staying in Umhlanga when the tourney is in the Burra? These Vaalies never cease to amaze me – they think Umhlanga is the centre of the universe.

  44. @BOG Dankie vir die stats oor Waterkloof, hulle sal hulle keer moet ken teen die Kwaggas, daai manne kan verwoestend wees. Gaan interessant wees om te sien hoe nr 9 Phillips ontwikkel, ek was beindruk met hom laas jaar.

  48. @Klofie Pa: for a convenient spot that was good the last time I went there, try the Jaipur Palace in Waterlant Road which is off the M4 (beach Road into town from Umhlanga) close to the Hypermarket). It’s a proper sit down spot and they give you spanners so you don’t need to eat with your hands. Greenblooded is correct though, the more out of the way spots and a good 1/2 bunny is best. Mrs Govenders just won the Durban bunny chow competition if I am not mistaken. If the beautiful wife wants dinner then the Jaipur is a good spot I think.

  52. @Bog Dit is altyd vir my interesant om spanne te sien wat al die jare die melkkoeie was op Wildeklawer en dan skielik het hulle ‘n half decent span en nou weet en wen hulle skielik alles. Ek vertroos my daaraan dat ons in die jare wat kom weer minder gaan hoor van hulle.

  53. @PaulRoosPa: Heeltemal reg.So dikwels het ek hier gesien dat ondersteuners van spanne wat skielik en onverwags n redelike span het, almal wil uitdaag en daarvan beskuldig dat hulle kwansuis “bang” is. So, asof n skool n paar Saterdae oophou, spesiaal om hierdie “uitdagings” te akkommodeer en die beskuldigings van “vrees”, te weerle. Natuurlik word die realiteite van vooruit skedulering gerieflikheidshalwe geignoreer en teen die tyd wat so n wedstryd as n moontlikheid oorweeg kan word, is hulle vir n paar jaar weer vergete (Behalwe vir netbal natuurlik, want hulle is mos “normaal”)@jakkie: Ek maak beslis nie n ophef van GCB se geskiedenis nie, maar terselfde tyd, ignoreer ek dit nie. Of jy of een van jou medeondersteuners het gese: “geskiedenis counts for nothing” (so iets)

  65. Boland Landbou beat Wynberg 37-27 recently, so does that indicate the true strength of Wynberg? OR does Boland Landbou not travel well or play that much better at home……maybe they have some injuries. For a school of only 330 boys an injury would change the look of the team immensely. Any win over Boland Landbou is a great one, which shows how much respect we have for these tough farmers. The game vs Boishaai will be the acid test and I’ll be following both Drostdy and BL’s local Cape fixtures with interest…..do BL play Drostdy?

  78. FYI – just did some analysis on the teams at Kearsney Fest to see how many are coming back in 2014 (born 1996) from squads of 23;

    Boland Landbou – 5
    EG Jansen – 4
    Framesby – 10
    Glenwood – 9
    Grey Bloem – 6
    Kearsney – 4
    Nico Malan – 10
    Outeniqua – 4 (Zandberg and de Necker, eish)
    Paarl Gim – 7
    Paul Roos – no team list
    Selborne – 3
    Westville – 2

    Now I know some boys born in 1995 may still be in grade 11 now bit they won’t be eligible for Craven Week next year. Also, I am aware returning players does not indicate success for the next year it just indicates inexperience this year. Framesby, Glenwood and Nico Malan were the least experienced this year, it showed in some of the results. Framesby should hit back next year and Glenwood would have learnt some good lessons in their Gim defeat. What is scary for me is that I finished matric in 96 and these boys were born then….eish!!

  91. @Slam: My source at the match, front-rower, Dale boy, who played for Border for about 6 years, says it was not the jumpers at fault but rather poor throwing in, over the receivers hands or just skew.

Got so desperate that they took a tap penalty on the half way at one stage????

  93. @Gungets Tuft: If you don’t have the ball you cannot play – you just end up defending and tackling yourself to a standstill. First phase ball from the line-out is crucial possession and cannot be squandered. The opposition will quickly pick up on this and kick you back into your own half at every chance, win the line-out from you and score points. Story of today in a nutshell methinks.

  94. @BOG: Geskiedenis 101, As jy in die 2013 verloor teen ‘n skool genoem na ‘n baster perd, kwagga, roem jou op die verlede.

Al die ander ondersteuners gaan vir jou lag maar namate daardie span meer GESKIEDKUNDIGE spanne pakslae gee sal jou siening, hoe simpel ook al, meer ondersteuning kry.

  95. @GreenBlooded: What the modern coaches seems to forget is that proper aggressive defense do win games. It even won the World Cup. But for that you need, as Klofie Pa puts it “onopgevoede” hard as nails players.
    Lesson learned with Tuks last game in Carlton Cup against a club team in Pretoria. Tuks tacklers was learned to tackle the ball and they were content playing the phases until the opposition made a mistake. Their opponents tackle the “wit waks” out of them and almost every tackle resulted in turnover.
    Do not underestimate proper defense as an attacking opportunity. If you unsettle your opponents the game is yours to loose.

  96. @Ludz: Ludz. Amazingly Dian Koen did not play at all today. I’m not sure if the Kloof 8 was Nardus Erasmus but he was quiet. The EG 8 Marco Holmes was good at KERF and was brilliant today. The Glenwood 8 Jaco Coetzee was my MotM in the game against Gim. And Geor Malan was outstanding for Outeniqua. Wiehan Jacobs was good but not stand out. Bothma is a class act. Made his try look effortless but Gim hardly had to build up a sweat today.

  101. @Tjoppa: I really thought based on the quality of the opposition – no.8 of the day Marco Holmes of EG. Surprise of the day Hanru Liebenberg being so quiet. Geor Malan also very good today

    7 Christo vd Merwe was good for PRG and so was EG’s Morne Swart

    I though the Kwaggas props were both good today and big Frans van Wyk showed up a lot in carries for Monnas. I suspect the real contest might have been on the B-field where Thomas du Toit went up against Kabelo Motloung. At tighthead I really like Ruan Kramer of Grey
    College but little Gim prop DJ van Niekerk always seems good.

    Did not get to watch RG play but really really liked Martin Groenewald of Grey PE. Zandberg back to his best today for Kwaggas

    No9 Remu Malan

    No.10 Dewald Human. His x-factor ability is too good.

    No.11 Duhan vd Merwe – he was player of the day. EG, College, Glenwood and Grey PE no.11s played well.

    12. Gelant was too quiet today compared to usual. Carel Durow and Daniel du Plessis made bigger contributions

    13. Did not see Jurie play but Cramer of PRG and as per usual Sampie Hearn of EG good. Also Monnas centres did not have bad outings. Tieties of NKaap did not get much quality ball but he did a few good things with what came his way.

    14. Theo Ferreira Grey Bloem. Ngcobo of College also good

    15. I did not see Keyter. EW Viljoen of Grey Bloem. Corne Vermaak of Glenwood good. Grant Hermanus of Gim had easy game but always looks best at 15. Outeniqua 15 Barnard good too. Would have liked to see Klofies 15 get more ball. He looked quite good. Tristan Nel

    ReplyReply
  102. @GreenBlooded: Agree, so does my mate.

    @Tjoppa: Agree as well, but you don’t needlessly turn attack into defense, even if you are confident in your ability to turn the ball over. You need to make your possession count, and then stop your opponent doing the same. Losing 50% of your own LO ball is poor.

    ReplyReply
  103. @Gungets Tuft: I think College made 2 selection mistakes today. They should have started with Jacobs and Alexander. Both these players started vs DHS and when they came on they helped change the game. College started to win lineout ball via Jacobs. Apparently he is their only player who is good at making lineout calls. Alexander is creative. His superior passing game and reading of the game opened up the PRG defence.

    Personally the 1D nature of the MC lineout frustrated the hell out of me. Why they did not have a back-up plan to do more creative stuff to win ball when things started to go wrong is beyond me. No short line-outs, try more quicklines, low throw-in to the prop at 1 etc. Nothing! The try they conceded from losing their own lineout on their 5m line when their lineout confidence was at it’s lowest point could have been avoided by a 3 man lineout and a long throw to a flank joining outside the 15m area???

  104. @beet: okay, good synopsis. Groenawald is very good at 8, but good to hear he did well at lock. Geor Malan is a really good player, plays hard with real heart, punches way above his weight. He’d captain my SA Schools side any day.

  116. Ernst Stapelberg might need to replace Human in my side, too good. Human for me is a sevens player or fullback. It’s a tough job to pick from so many talented players. I think it’s Du Plessis from Boishaai maybe should be at hooker instead of Wipplenger and Dante from Boishaai instead of EW from Grey Bloem, although EW has the size, skill, speed and step. At Keasney he was the best fullback by far….
